Our Lady of Fatima Parish

Last year a group of parishioners of Our Lady of Fátima in White City – which, despite its name, is a vibrant multicultural community in one of west London’s largest social housing estates – began to meet regularly on Zoom. They talked together about the reality of racism in the wider society and also in their own community.

These testimonies and reflections are taken from a booklet produced by the Parish of Our Lady of Fátima, Rooting Out Racism from Our Parish.
